Lamprey spinal cord

The Lamprey Regenerates Its Spinal Cord Not Just Once – but Twice

Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) scientists determine central nervous system regeneration with ZEISS microscopes

Customer Story

The eel-like lamprey can fully regenerate its spinal cord even after it’s been severed. In a new study, Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) scientists report that lampreys recover and regenerate just as impressively after a second complete spinal cord injury at the same location. A recent study by Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) scientists opens up a new path for identifying pro-regenerative molecules and potential therapeutic targets for human spinal cord injury.

Today Is World Cancer Day: #IAmAndIWill

ZEISS contributes to cancer research, diagnosis and therapy

News

ZEISS plays an important role in the fight against cancer. Both in labs and at hospitals, ZEISS systems support cancer research, diagnostics and treatment. For example, scientists conduct chromosome research using ZEISS microscopes and thus lay the groundwork for the fight against cancer. And with automated fluorescence microscopy and living cell experiments, researchers observe cells at different stages of their division, allowing them to slow or halt the growth of cancer.
